Kindle Immersion Read
I sat in the presence of greatness at Unity Temple in Kansas City, Missouri on April 16, 2019, as Rainy Day Books brought in Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Rick Bragg to speak to a crowd of his fans about his latest publication, 'The Best Cook in the World: Tales from my Momma's Table'

There is a reason the Bragg resonates with people, he is kind, humble, and very talented.
His stories have been the topic of many dinner conversations over the years.

If Rick Bragg writes it, I'm going to read it. If he provides narration, I'm going to listen.

Author Rick Bragg writes about his family's elders in the South, using a voice that is quietly eloquent, lending integrity to the hardscrabble life. This book, about his mother's ability to cook by instinct, had me hooked on page one. Highly recommended !
